Do you see this big girl?
That is my baby!
My baby started first grade today!!!
I did not cry until I got in the car to drive home.
She wore red patent leather Mary Janes.
When India was little, she always wore red Mary Janes
to school in the Fall.
If I was president, I would make a law that
all little girls should have red Mary Janes for school.
I am only half-kidding.
Ahnalin's teacher is Mrs. Thibodeau and Ahnalin was
so afraid to meet her.
Ahnalin does not like change and she misses her Kindergarten
teacher, Ms. Mass, who she adored.
But Mrs. Thibodeau is a really nice lady and she worked hard to make
Ahnalin feel comfortable.
After checking in to the classroom, Ahnalin wanted to go out to the playground.
She climbed on to the Monkey Bars.
And her eyes started to twinkle again!
We call them her "Rainbow eyes" when they twinkle.
And once again, the Monkey Girl is at home
on her beloved bars.
We heard the school bell ring, so we headed back to the classroom.
I did not get any more pictures because my camera broke.
Sigh......broken camera, broken sewing machine.
Mama crying in the car because her last baby is a big first grader.
So, my best friend is taking me to lunch today.
In other news, India did GREAT at the Disneyland
casting call, but she got cut about halfway through the day.
The casting people were very encouraging to her and told her
that the position that she REALLY wants will be casting in a few
more months, so she should come back and audition again then.
She had a wonderful time!
Thank you for the prayers!!
